Bitcoin ATMs were the focus of a recent crackdown by the U.S. government when a $25 million operation was taken down and 17 machines seized in California. The owner was running the operation without complying with proper AML requirements, the Department of Justice said.

In June, news.Bitcoin.com reported that U.S. regulators had been targeting bitcoin ATMs. According to blockchain analytics firm Ciphertrace, 88% of funds that U.S.-based BTMs sent to exchanges in 2019 were sent offshore and users on average sent more funds to high-risk exchanges than low-risk exchanges.
